Due to a coin shortage at the Federal Reserve, Kroger will no longer give coin change to customers. The remainders from a cash transaction can either be donated to charity or applied to the customers’ loyalty cards. Customers using self-checkout will still be able to receive coins.

Wal Mart has not gone so far as denying change to customers, but has asked that people use debit or credit for transactions.

For those of you who wish to continue using cash, here’s an interesting post from a Senator:

 

So according to this, if a business refuses to take cash they are breaking the law? I’m not sure that’s true. Eventually someone on facebook will make an issue about it and we’ll find out.

I don’t have the picture, but I’m hearing Walgreen’s has a sign up asking for cashless transactions. Is cashless the future, or just a way for companies and the government to track every purchase we make?
